How to Complain about LITTLE RASCALS

For complaints about any aspect of your Little Rascals puppy buying experience, the first point of contact should always be by email or letter to Little Rascals themselves. Phone calls are not recommended because you will have no proof of anything said or agreed on many occasions the staff and proprietors of Little Rascals have denied any contact has been made.

If you have a problem with the health of your Little Rascals puppy, Swindells or Dickens may offer a refund, providing you return your puppy to themLittle Rascals Pet Breeders Lincoln UK, Little Rascals Dog Breeders Brant Broughton Lincoln, Little Rascals Puppies for Sale UK, Little Rascals Beagle puppies for sale, Little Rascals Parvo Virus, Little Rascals Puppies Complaints, North Kesteven Little Rascals, Trading Standards Little Rascals, Lincolnshire Trading Standards Little Rascals Dog Breeders, RSPCA Little Rascals Dog Breeders, BBC Inside Out Little Rascals,

Failing that, Little Rascals might (if you’re very lucky) offer to pay any excess on your vet’s bill (after you’ve used the insurance), but this is rare and occurs only to stop you taking the complaint any further.

However, the reality is that your complaint is likely to be met with denial, hostility and/or accusations that you are lying. On occasions Swindells and Dickens have even threatened legal action. These are desperate and hollow threats – they can do nothing if you have proof.

It doesn’t matter what the proprietors and staff threaten or say, all buyers are within their rights to inform Little Rascals of any health issues a puppy has, either at the point of sale or within a short time after, and buyers also have the right to complain about genetic health issues which develop a long time after sale. 

Whenever you decide to complain, it is very important to make contact with Little Rascals first. Whether or not Little Rascals acknowledge your complaint (you should give them 72 hours to respond) or even if they resolve any issues, you should still please contact the local authority responsible for issuing their breeding licence – North KestevenAlso send a copy of your complaint to Lincolnshire Trading Standards, the RSPCA and your local MP (full details below).

There is a very good reason why you should not stop at just informing North Kesteven – many people have submitted complaints about Little Rascals to North Kesteven in the past and a vast majority of those complaints have been disregarded or ignored. Even the recent deaths of a whole litter of Little Rascals Beagle puppies have been overlooked by this council – we can only speculate why!

When you contact North Kesteven, it is important to also send a copy of your email to a Councillor representing the Brant Broughton district – either Sue Howe or Pat Woodman MBE, as this will ensure that the licensing department cannot ignore your complaint.

Please be assured that all details will remain confidential and any complaint you make to the RSPCA, North Kesteven Council, Trading Standards or your local MP is protected under Data Protection law.

We urge you please to complain about any issues with your Little Rascals’ puppy buying experience or anything you witness at their premises which concerns you in any way – if you fail to do so, other puppies and breeding dogs will continue to suffer.

    I’ve done some independent research and spoken to at least 4 customers from Little Rascals that have had actual complaints. That means there must be HUNDREDS, if not thousands, of happy customers out there with puppies from this breeder. I’ve followed this website for a while now and all I can say is you must have a bitter hatred for the little rascals owners…. which is truly sad and stinks of desperation. You have no interest in the wellbeing of the puppies, if you did you’d be trying to stop backstreet breeders,not licensed ones. Morons!
